Political Campaign Financing

Jay Miller has a thought provoking blog post which discusses campaign financing and the governor candidates views on the subject on his blog Inside the Capitol.

While I think voter participation in the process is important and many voters and supporters feel good about helping their candidates whether it is $10 or $1000 or by holding a sign or selling a raffle ticket. There is still a lot to be said about public campaign financing. It would allow candidates a chance to just get out and speak to the people instead of spending so much time fundraising. It would also remove any allegations of favoritism or special access for donors. But as advertising and media expenses rise and rise can the costs get too high for taxpayers to bear? Are they already too high? What do you think?
